Ah hem.   Don't you mean "The Java (TM) Programming Language"?

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

But on the subject of the subject, I like using Jython for doing Swing UI

easy to use and flexible UI toolkit.   However, I'm starting to get know
wxPython better these days and it is pretty nifty in its own right.

Outside of Swing, Java does have a pretty hefty set of libraries; Jython
allows you access to any of those, with Python's clean and simple syntax
(and of course it is especially nice that you can experiment with them
